GENEVA, February 6 ― Kevin J. Hobert, Chief Executive Officer of Carestream Health, Inc., paid a recent visit to the Midlands region of Ireland to see at first hand how Carestream Heath has successfully installed an integrated Radiology Information and Picture Archiving and Communication system (RIS/PACS), with in-built voice recognition technology. The system currently links two acute service hospitals, at Tullamore and Mullingar, both part of the Health Service Executive (HSE) Midland Regional Hospitals.

The Carestream Health system was chosen initially for its ease of use and competitive pricing, and Mr Hobert found that it has already delivered operational and workflow efficiencies to both Tullamore and Mullingar, improving overall hospital management.

Pauric Greenan, Project Coordinator for the HSE Midland Area explained: ‘We are committed to developing world-class services for our patients, optimising patient care at three acute hospital sites in the region – at Tullamore and Mullingar, and soon at Portlaoise. Carestream Health was the obvious choice for this project – their system came top of our selection process.’ He continued: ‘The current implementation means that we already have two of the most technically advanced radiology departments in the country. With the National Integrated Medical Imaging System (NIMIS) project aiming to install PACS with voice recognition in every Irish hospital over the next 2-3 years, the Carestream Health project puts the Midlands well ahead of the game.’

Kevin Hobert said: ‘I am very happy to visit Tullamore and Mullingar hospitals to see at first hand how the implementation of Carestream Health technology has increased workflow and improved productivity between the two sites.  It’s exciting to see HSE Midlands Area’s vision for world class patient services becoming reality with the help of Carestream Health.’
